This robotic reader can flip pages at mind numbing speeds
The University of Tokyo is using this system to digitize it`s libraryBFS-Auto can achieve high-speed and high-definition book digitization at over 250 pages/min using the original media format.
This performance is realized by three key points: high-speed fully-automated page flipping, real-time 3D recognition of the flipped pages, and high-accuracy restoration to a flat document image. This system is toward the practical use in 2013.
